One of the main songs from Rema’s debut album, “Raves & Roses,” titled “Calm Down,” was made public on February 11th, 2022. The song continued to gain popularity and peaked at number five on TurnTable Top 100.
The song’s success is highlighted in the music video; only three months after its debut, it had amassed 100 million streams. On Spotify alone, it has had over 173 million streams, and Audiomack and Boomplay have each received millions of streams.
American pop diva Selena Gomez contributed a line to the song “Calm Down,” which led to an international remix and further boosted the song’s popularity.
